Highlighted by Great Room-centered layouts, gourmet kitchens equipped with state-of the-art appliances and breathtaking outdoor living spaces, these new floor plans feature the latest innovations in residential architecture. One of the home designs offers a room just for pets, complete with a Puppy Wash station and cabinetry designed to keep the toys and treats of furry family members organized.

Taking cues from hospitality, the master retreats feature oversized bedrooms with adjoining spa-like master baths that showcase oversized his and her showers, large soaking tubs, and his and her master closets in some of the plans. Downstairs master retreats are offered in many of the designs.

Solar is included at Laurelton at Blackstone as are unique outdoor living areas that extend the livable square footage of the home and allow residents to enjoy the beautiful California weather.
